There is a welcome new addition to Richmond Street and to Manchester’s Gay Village. The Parlour is a fab new watering hole bringing a little Northern Quarter retro chic into The Village.

The bar is a former hairdressers that has been kitted out with decor reclaimed from a former Salford pub, which now forms the heart and soul of the The Parlour. While the ceiling is plastered with posters and if you can’t find your favourite one there the Parlour-ettes will pin in up.

The Parlour are also doing their bit for charity mate by hosting a tea party for AmnesTea (on behalf of Amnesty International) on the 10th of December 2009. So if you need to put your feet up after heading out for some Christmas shopping then drop in.
